Had an amazing ride last night on Brumby! It was our best yet, the canter work is improving so much. And I think I might actually be developing half-decent hands. I was beginning to wonder if that would ever happen, lol. Ah, riding is so much a lesson in patience (as you all know very well!)
I got to watch Sandi Patterson (long time groom to the great Big Ben, is (or was) barn manager at Jill Henselwood's Juniper farms, and is a well respected coach) give a private lesson this week. It was a pretty neat experience and she is a very nice person. She showed me her method of counting stride lengths between jumps, nothing like learning basics from a master! Lol.
Let's see...what else has been going on? Oh, we has a fan installed in the bathroom but the electrician couldn't do the whole job so we had to finish it. This involved putting a whole in the roof - yikes!
Everything worked out great though!
I made a yummy vegetarian chilli
And Hazel napped while showing off her lovely teeth!
That's all I have to report. I am going to buy a new pair of breeches this afternoon - woo hoo!
